    Punjab minister covers CM’s name on Kartarpur corridor foundation stone with tape

    The row over Kartarpur corridor refuses to die down even on the day of stone-laying. Hours ahead of the ceremony, Punjab minister Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa pasted black tape on his, chief minister Amarinder Singh and other Punjab ministers’ names engraved on the foundation stone.

    “I have done this to protest the inclusion of Parkash Singh Badal’s and Sukhbir Singh Badal’s names on the foundation stone. Why are their names here? They are not a part of the executive. It’s not a BJP-Akali event,” Randhawa said.

    Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu is scheduled to lay the foundation stone for the construction of Dera Baba Nanak-Kartarpur Sahib road corridor up to international border with Pakistan in Mann village in Gurdaspur on Monday.

    Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari, Union Minister of Food Processing Harsimrat Kaur Badal, Punjab Chief Minister Amrinder Singh will be present on the occasion.

    To mark Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s 550th birth anniversary in 2019, the government had on November 22 decided to build the Kartarpur road corridor up to international border between India and Pakistan as an integrated development project.
